Spontaneity















Spontaneity !! 

Whether we know or not
Our experience is always 
Spontaneous..
Our Moment is shaped
And colored
And expresses
Always..our Self..yet
Our minds leap to separate
And label..rendering 
False impressions of  Self.. 
Allowing our minds to
Leap unnoticed
Takes us from Home on
More and more journeys..while
Reecognition of Home comes
On one Spontaneous
Journey...!

Stars and Books. (with Hermann Hesse)

























Fuel for the Fire

It is our conditioning  
That we need recognize..
Our sole purpose in life
Is to make this Recognition..
This is the baggage 
We have and are carrying..
Those stories and beliefs
Which seem to stand and claim
Our allegiance and identity..
This burden promises to stay
Until we give it our undivided
Attention..not referring to
Books and stars..but to that
Of ourself which is primed
To burn away and dissolve...
 


Thought for the day....... “I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.” Hermann Hesse

Exploration















Exploration

In an old story
Joshua and Caleb
Took the journey to
Milk and Honey Land
And recognized Themselves..
Their friends saw giants
And grasshoppers which
Concealed their Identity
With a veil of fear..
And their fear spread
Like a virus infecting
That waiting crowd..

Moses was perplexed
But knew then
That in our exploring
False identities must
Die in the wilderness
To finally reveal our
Milk and Honey... 



Seeming
























Seeming

Who are we..
This seeming person
Doing that which we
Seem to be doing 
In this moment..?
Do we see
That "seeming" is our
Ticket to Recognize
Ourself as character
And ourSelf as Stage...?

History's Maskings


























History's Maskings

This apparent urge to
Erase the markings of history
Which appear to stain..
History..a story appearing
In our reading this moment..
Often justifying past doings..
But..alas.. assumptions of 
Division cling and remain..

Statues..toppled in
Widespread places..may be
(Whether recognized or not)
A turn Inward..collectively
To cleanse the divisions 
Hiding our inner Vastness 
Out of which all history
Emerges and is made...

Perfect Brilliant Stillness..








Your own nature is essentially pure, utterly still.” ~ Hui Hai
"The ultimate understanding is a seeing and a knowing rather than a comprehending.
And it does satisfy all questions,
though not answering them.
Answers become irrelevant
as the questions themselves
both cease in the seeing.
Do not judge the questioning or the longing,
the seeking or the sadness,
the impatience or the resistance,
the opening or the letting go.
It is all the perfect unfolding as it is:
only watch it and know you are not that.
You are ‘loving awareness’ in which all arises.
You are quiet compassionate space in which the life
you think as ‘yourself ’unfolds.
This still expanse of acceptance between the thoughts
is all there is.
That is what you are.
Let the love that is the stillness that you are
embrace you
overcome you."
~Perfect Brilliant Stillness~

SILENCE
-John McIntosh
Silence is Who You Really Are. This is not the absence of sound, although that is certainly often the way IT may be experienced [partially]. One who dwells ‘always as’ the SELF [ONE - God - Consciousness - Silence] is often found ‘in/as’ Silence. They do not socialize and yet may be found [for some often] ‘in’ society when called to … but they do not seek it out. Whatever their needs may be to maintain the body [great or small] … just shows up in the moment.
The influence of Silence [Truth] is far greater than words [thought or spoken] and actions. IT dissolves imbalance in whatever way IT shows up. The degree to which one is ‘open’ to Truth [Freedom], determines what influence IT will have. In some rare instances IT is so profound as to bring one over the bridge of dreams into Freedom spontaneously.
A state of readiness certainly has been there in these blessed cases, usually preceded by much inner work. Notwithstanding, to be in the Presence of Silence will touch one in the precise way that is Perfect for their highest good in the moment.

Transparency























Transparency

artists try to tell us
through their strokes
through watercolor washes
and photos slightly 
over-exposed..that we
can journey inward
guided by their play
with the Light
to find our real 
transparent Self..
